    Ej22 quick power gains?

    Hey all, I swapped my legacy with a 2.2L and I am looking for some more power.
    Any help would be appreciated, I'm also looking for single port headers if anyone has any for sale!
    Again, any suggestions for power gains are welcome!
    Sincerely, Gorloth

    These are supposed to be a quality piece.

    Perhaps an intake. I believe Cosmos Racing still sells one.

    If you have the 3.90 gear ratio, I've been told that the 4.11 will be a noticeable gain.

    Or you can boost the 2.2 to about 5 pounds without hurting it.

    There are many, many threads on this site about engine swaps. If you're a good mechanic, go ahead with the WRX swap. I'm not, so I won't. There is also a dyno thread

    where you can see the potential of the different engines. The easiest for you would be going back to the EJ25 but then, you're losing the reliability of the EJ22.
